From an email:

“To kick off celebration of the 200th anniversary of the U.S. Botanic Garden’s (USBG) original 1820 charter, the Garden is collaborating with renowned stickwork artist Patrick Dougherty to create a custom sculpture to stand throughout the 2020 celebratory year.

Dougherty, who hails from North Carolina, is known around the world for his installations woven from plant materials, which celebrate nature through both materials and visually flowing lines. Over 30 years, he has built more than 250 stickwork sculptures, from Scotland to Japan to all over the United States. D.C.-area residents might remember his gallery-filling installation in the popular “Wonder” exhibit at the reopening of Renwick Gallery. Read More

With mirrors, cameras and other technologies seamlessly weaved into the art pieces, Robin allows the audience to see themselves in the installations and invites them to reflect on their own space in society at an intimate environment of the Lost Origins Gallery.  Read More

where New York Avenue and N Street NE meet at North Capitol Street

From a press release:

“It’s a question as old as philosophy itself: Which came first, the chicken or the egg? In NoMa, it turns out, they arrived simultaneously. This week, the NoMa Business Improvement District (BID) is installing The Chicken and the Egg, a two-piece sculpture, on a U.S. National Park Service (NPS) property at the southeast corner of the New York Avenue and North Capitol Street intersection. The public artwork is the first realization of the BID’s Gateways Project (nomabid.org/gateways), a long-term effort that will use art to transform key intersections around NoMa. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

This Saturday we and other DC brands Nos Nos and Charix are launching a design showroom in the Cheshire, an old Adams Morgan luxury car garage built in 1906.  We’re aiming to covert the space, which has been empty for a while now, into a hub for creativity, sustainability, and entrepreneurship.” Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Over the years, I have seen the artist of this George Clinton painting carrying the artwork at the Funk Parade and other DC events. This year, there was a younger man with a framed print version at the Funk Parade. I would love to order a copy of the print but google has failed me. It looks like the print was signed Oliver W. Johnson, Jr. Does anybody have leads?”
